In this paper I will look at pedagogical models that make space for mutual support and encouragement, interactive dialogical learning, respectful conversation and the formation of community within the learning environment. These principles are described as feminist and anti-oppression in their focus particularly because they value the voice and opinion of all and specifically make space for marginalized opinions, views that do not coincide with the values and focus of dominant cultural perspectives. I hope to show how these principles of anti-oppression and feminist pedagogy can be utilized in online learning environments so that more people can learn more and diverse information from more and diverse sources than would otherwise be possible in online theological education. -- Abstract.
